*Business Model Bright Spot:*

*The Social Justice Organization*

Thursday, June 20th, 2019 at 2:00 pm ET

Following* NPQ*’s highly successful *Mastering the Business Model* series
last year, this year we are highlighting business-model bright spots to
show what mastering a business model looks like in practice. This
complementary webinar series
focuses on groups who have done something purposeful and special to
strengthen their business models. These are stories we can all learn from,
full of replicable strategies and cautionary guidance.

Our second bright spot focuses on how social justice values and strategies
can manifest clearly in a thriving nonprofit business model. Community
Coalition of South Los Angeles, which works to help transform the social
and economic conditions in South L.A. has grown into a $6 million a
year organization
that owns its own building, has a growing community membership program,
throws a must-attend annual event, and successfully raises money from
foundations and government agencies. The Coalition has achieved this scale
and influence as it has continued to center the people of South L.A.

How can nonprofits do this? How can they get big, gain political influence,
achieve greater financial sustainability and independence, all while
centering social justice values and strategies?

*Join us*
on June 20th for a deep-dive, interactive conversation into Pollen how made
this happen and the key lessons learned.
